Digital Copyright: opportunities and practicalities
Presented in association with Naomi Korn, copyright consultant.

Copyright is a current and important topic for 
many organisations, particularly those that are 
considering digitising and delivering digital 
content in order to make sure that their rights 
are not infringed upon and their assets are fully 
exploited. This all-day course will focus upon 
participant's experiences and case studies. It 
will encourage group work and discussion around 
key areas, whilst focusing on current topics and 
real world digital issues. This course will 
appeal to everyone currently digitising content 
or thinking of embarking on a digital project who 
wishes to learn more about rights issues. 
Participants are invited to bring case studies 
and outlines of current projects to the session.

By the end of the day, participants will:

     * Encounter the key issues relating to digital copyright
     * Know the importance of managing and protecting their rights
     * Share experiences and good practice tips with other participants
     * Gain knowledge about how best practice can 
be embedded within their daily work

Naomi Korn is an experienced trainer and 
consultant, specialising in copyright, IPR, 
licencing and digital rights management. She has 
worked for many years with museums, galleries, 
archives, libraries and the higher education 
sector. She was the first copyright officer at 
the Tate and has contributed to many 
international projects. She is currently the 
Secretary of the Museum Copyright Group. See

Fundraising

Heritage and memory organizations are 
increasingly engaging in many different kinds of 
digital projects large and small. These projects 
often need to be funded from outside sources, at 
least in the early stages, as it is difficult to 
create new funding streams for new initiatives. 
This workshop will address some of the key issues 
in planning and costing digital projects, 
identifying funders, writing grant proposals, and 
will discuss some of the major sources of funding 
available to not-for-profit organisations.

Topics covered in this training day include:

     * Finding funders
     * Matching bids to funders needs
     * Proposal development
     * Writing and pitching proposals
     * Financial issues
           o Managing the project/programme finances
           o Cost and benefit analysis for planning expenditure
           o Tendering and procurement
           o Sustaining the funding stream

Sustaining digital projects: funding the future

The long-term sustainability of digital resources 
is a problem in a world where projects are 
conceived of as short-term activities and where 
funders have limited resources to commit beyond 
initial development phases. Regular updating and 
upgrading is inevitable, and hardware and 
software must be replaced regularly if a resource 
is to grow and thrive. This course will identify 
the key issues in developing a sustainability 
plan including what to sustain (resource, people 
and/or activity), various revenue models and 
finding your market niche for future funding.

Topics covered in this training day include:

     * What are you sustaining?
     * Cost and benefit analysis for planning the future
     * Stakeholder studies - knowing your audience
     * Revenue models and channels to market
           o Advertising model
           o Infomediary model
           o Merchant model
           o Affiliate model
           o Community model
           o Subscription model
           o Utility model
